Louie won the Young Achiever Category in WDH’s 2015 Love Where You Live Awards.
Selfless 10-year-old Louie is always putting other people first and has held multiple fundraisers for his local community. His events have included race nights and sponsored walks to raise money with his rugby team, the Smawthorne Panthers U10’s.
He has now challenged himself to take part in two of the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis UK and Liver Foundation UK, two charities that are very close to his heart.
He said: “I can’t believe I won! Thank you to everyone who voted for me. I plan to use the money to support my rugby team, Smawthorne Panthers U10’s.”
